    Usually when I think model I think there is focus on something fashion wise. These are decent portraits though. The shadow kinda bugs me a little bit in the first one.

    Not bad for your first time. I like the first two much more than the last.

    And also, I see dust spots...time to clean your sensor.

    I see the dust spots as well. I dont care for the first one much, she looks angry and the harsh shadow on the background is distracting.

    I love the second one, very nice and the lighting is perfect.

    The last one I like as well, I would suggest a reflector on the shadowed side of her face to bounce some light back on there and I would crop in a bit tighter.

    Overall, nice work...especially for your first time, very impressive!

    I like the second one best. I am a noob but I like the photo. Good Job (IMO).

    Agreed with the purse. The first thing I thought was "Ummm, why is this purse in the picture? Is it a Coach shoot?" I don't care much for her facial expression in the first or last...way too angry...but she has nice fine hair, i would have used a fan to add the wind blown look to the second one, which i LOVE the lighting in. Overall good job for the first time, impressive. =):thumbup:
